6. Not under 18. At 18 for the first time. (It's a two-peat )
7. Yes
9. I guess so



My vote is for showing off the wings.

Sherri, did you not answer #8 for a reason?

Come on guys, help me out here! More questions from all 'round!
10) Does it have to do with a celebrity?
11) Did you help someone?
12) Does being 18 have anything to do with it?
13) Would it happen again now?
14) Is it a contest you won or participated in?

I should be showering and getting ready for Warped Tour, but okay!
What number are we on? 16?
Oh well:
16) Was it legal?
17) Did you do it alone?

Sorry if those were asked before...I was pretty sure they were original.

Oh, I'm definitely showing off my wings tomorrow! Davey Havok has HUGE black angel wings tattooed on his back, so any indication that we have *some*thing in common? I won't pass that up!
(says my inner 16-year-old fangirl! )

I actually spoke on the phone to a fellow AFI fan-friend who got into the listening party they had in Milwaukee yesterday...she told me not to get my hopes up for anything spectacular. I don't, actually, but it was nice to know what she experienced so I don't make it bigger than it is. I mean, no matter how much more connected these rock stars are to their fans than other, bigger rock stars, they ARE still rock stars.
I met Tori Amos a long time ago, and though I only got like 2 minutes with her, and she probably forgot me two minutes after we parted, I remember it, and still cherish the memory! It was wonderful.
It's fun to be a fangirl every so often though! Heehee.

So why is it, mamas, that on a night Rowan REALLY needs to sleep and sleep IN, he wakes like 5 times during the night and is fully awake by 6am???
He is SO going down (for a nap!) at like 11:30.

I am going to be late to Warped because I need to buy tickets to the Blaqk Audio concert at noon. Haha.

Oh, Lisa, I will offer more thoughts soon, but Sorry the work sitch is going to be difficult.

Have a great day everyone! Gotta go pack up the sunscreen! Oh, and shower. Showering might be a good idea...

YAAAAAYYY! omg, Sherri, were you also a cheerleader? If so, I think I am not quite worthy to be on this board with you.

That's kind of amazing! How/why? Because you were an "all that" kinda student? Tell me more about it!

And why yes, I do believe the rules stated something about me receiving sumthin special....: : : :

Random replies from my cluttered brain:

Sherri- you said yes to both high school and college- does that mean you were valedictorian of BOTH???!!!

Renae- I'm lovin your fangirl side. Tee hee. I've never been one, so I'll enjoy it vicariously through you.

Lisa- dh and I work opposite schedules, but have Sunday off together. It IS hard to find time together. Recently we've started dating Tuesday mornings from 8:15 to 10:15 am. We have made this work for 3 years now, so it IS survivable. (Dh works a 10 to 5 type job, I work W night 4 hrs, then from Fri afternoon to Saturday night).

DH took today off to help with the kids so I could make some progress on my blasted bills. I love that guy.

OK, off to work on finances some more. Blech!

aw, shucks, guys, I'm feeling all embarassed now. I wasn't a cheerleader, elsanne! Both my high school and college classes weren't all that large. About 100 or so graduated from each, so it's not like I was the smartes of thousands. By nature, I'm just a bit of a perfectionist, especially when it came to schoolwork. I never set out to graduate at the top of my class, it just happened, I guess. I was just a good student. If I had to go back to school now, though, there's just no way!

So that's me in a nutshell. Who's next? Els, PM me your address chica.:

Are you serious, that you were valedictorian TWICE???? For high school and college? Holy scheit girl. What are you doing, not being CEO of your own corporation? Wait--you are--your VPs are just two small beautiful girls, that's the only diff--

: fernitude! Did you get your bills paid? Here's the bill sitch here: they deliver them right to your door, for water, and electricity. You go stand in line to pay them (well, Viet does). For gas, well, your tank just runs out so you have to call the truck to come fill it up (I put in about 50 usd every two months for hot water and cooking). For cable, I have to remember every month to go pay it at the company. I have internet cable w/o tv...costs about $38 usd/month.

Just because it's interesting to read about bills in other countries! My elec bill was kind of high versus other months, although still inexpensive, it was about $40 for two months. (yegads, why complain! only when it was about $15 for the two months prior) Water is about $10/month.

I got it! My bike is here. And so we have delighted in running errands on the bike. Two kids and assorted stuff all over town. I am tired! My legs are worn out. But we had such a fun picnic at the park and put everything on the bike and rode to the park. I will post a picture as soon as I have one.
It is really nice and handles really well so far.
This weekend I will try to get to the park on the hill and see how that works. I will try to go by myself first before I take the bike loaded down with 100 lbs of kids and stuff.

That is so cool! I can't wait to see it. Post pictures soon. Was yours the first one that your bike shop put together? I am finding that shops down here have not heard of it.
